Anyone who has ever seen the amount of lint that can come out of a dryer venting system during a professional cleaning would not hesitate for even a second to schedule an annual dryer vent cleaning. Dryer lint build-up is one of the most common causes of house fires, but because the dryer vent is hidden from view, it is too easy to put out of mind. However, there can be an immense amount of lint jammed inside your dryer’s venting pipe. A highly-combustible material, lint can become a very real fire hazard. The chimney professionals at Hudson Chimney have also seen blockages in dryer exhaust vents from nests of small animals and insects and damages to the venting system or an improper connection. A compromised vent will not exhaust properly to the outside. Accumulated lint can lead to reduced airflow and this can cause overheating which could easily start a fire. Most people assume that their dryer’s lint trap does a good enough job when it comes to catching lint, and while it generally does, “good enough” has not been enough for some. U.S. fire departments report an estimated 2,900 clothes dryer fires in residential buildings each year, causing an estimated 5 deaths, 100 injuries and $35 million in property loss.
The most important reason to keep air ducts clean is your health! Particularly if you have allergies, sensitivities, or respiratory issues, it’s important to keep the air quality high--not to mention potentially dangerous molds from building up. It’s also important for the health of your HVAC system. Keeping it clean and well maintained will improve performance and the life expectancy of the HVAC unit.
I was lucky enough to have my AC lines clog up on a Sunday night. I called Waychoff's after hours emergency service and Erin got back to me within 5 minutes of my initial call. She was very friendly and explained different service options for my situation. Eric was my technician and was at my house within the hour. He was very knowledgeable, explained everything he was doing in detail, gave me tips and advice to help prolong the life of my unit and even let my dog crawl all over him and "help". He had me back up and running less than an hour after he arrived. If you want a company who knows what they are doing and has fast, affordable and friendly service, I would highly recommend Waychoff's!
"Our electric bill has dropped around seventy dollars a month and that is with the a/c set at 76 degrees. I know it will be lower next summer since I am now taking advantage of the energy start setting the thermostat has. Also our son's coughing at night has stopped and I think it is due in part to the clean air effects filtration system that we got when we purchased the system. We are very happy with our new A/C system. Also we got a refund from Clay electric for having a 17 SEER system and we will get to write some off on our taxed next year."
Our technique cleans your entire dryer vent system twice – once from the outside and once from the inside – so you can be sure the job has been done right. According to dryer manufacturers, your dryer vent must be producing about 96 cubic feet of air per minute at a velocity of 1100 feet per minute in order for your dryer to be operating efficiently and safely. We test your system using a sophisticated thermo-anemometer to be sure that you are getting the proper air velocity and volume at the vent cap.
Assuring that your air ducts and air systems will be properly cleaned with the correct equipment, personnel has the proper training and is a Florida licensed Mechanical Contractor and that has the expertise in cleaning your home or building, is a small price to pay for the possible health benefits for you, your family, or the occupants of the building.
Remember; think about your air system as the lungs of your home. Then consider the type of company that you want to handle your home’s lungs and your indoor air quality within your home. Have the complete air system periodically inspected for contaminated duct work and have it properly maintained so your Heating and Air System can provide your family with good air quality for years to come. Qualified air duct cleaners will follow strict standards set by the National Air Duct Cleaners Association. Allowing an unqualified contractor to clean your ducts could be worse than not having them cleaned at all. More particles could be broken up and released into your home or your HVAC system could be damaged.
These are companies who are more interested in getting your money, through misleading advertisements or “bait and switch” mailers than actually doing the work properly and improving your indoor air. The very worse thing you can do is to hire a company that may actually create more of an indoor air problem for you and your family due to improper cleaning or use of inferior air duct cleaning vacuums with no more vacuum power than a large Wet/Dry vacuum with a rotating brush attached at the end of the hose, or use a “carpet cleaner” who is not properly licensed or certified to clean air systems. Be especially suspicious of companies advertising low one price duct cleaning service, it’s like providing a one price to paint the exterior of your home whether it be 1 story or several stories high.
"I was very pleased with the professional service I received. Despite the engineering challenges and heat, your team did a great job with installation and maintained a professional attitude through the 12-hour ordeal. I will not hesitate to recommend Waychoff's to our friends and neighbors. So far, we are very satisfied with the system and the results."
Fantastic service! Eric came out to conduct scheduled maintenance on my AC unit this afternoon. He was extremely thorough, honest, and candid. I appreciated his patience in explaining things in detail and giving me tips on things I could do myself to extend the life of my unit. Waychoff's pricing is fair, but their service is extra-ordinary- honest and trustful.5 Stars! Highly recommend.

Air duct cleaning costs will vary based on a number of factors such as your location in the country, the age and condition of your air ducts, the number of linear feet to be cleaned, and any repairs your ducts may need. HVAC cleaning companies should clearly outline what is included in their services and at what rate, so always make sure you understand and have a written agreement before work begins. Here are some examples of average air duct cleaning costs:
"We were very satisfied with all phases of the purchase and installation of our two new systems. The price was competitive and we appreciated the fact that Waychoff's did not attempt to markup Bryant's extended warranty as our previous company had done. We were also impressed that Waychoff's quote included modifications of the previous installation that might have added to the problems we had with our previous system. The installation was done on schedule as promised and the technicians were all excellent at their work and respectful of our property."
